HISTORY: 1993 Act No. 146, Section 2, eff June 14, 1993.
1993 Act No. 146, Section 1, effective June 14, 1993, provides as follows:
"SECTION 1. The General Assembly finds that the practice of offering fire protection services to residents by contract is leaving parts of the State without comprehensive service area coverage available to all citizens. The effect of these arrangements has resulted in overlapping and ineffective provision of fire protection service. The purpose of this act is to ensure that all persons within an area are provided the same level of fire protection service."
